  1. Thanks for the info. And thanks for the box package that I just ordered. Mike
  2. Anyone have any idea what is meant by “it will initially be offered as a bundle” means?
  3. Email sent. Now I need to catalog my ROMs and get some more.
  4. Rev always makes good. I know he has had problems getting some supplies, long before the pandemic hit the United States. Glad he has responded.
  5. Picked up my game at the post office. Had to sign for it. No customers charges. Outer shell box showed wear and had been broken down. But nothing like what others have posted. I look forward to playing it this weekend.
  6. You could develop and sell an updated ROM version -- with a discount for the boxed version buyers. You could have it tied to an individual's LTO Flash cart to prevent unintended distribution.
  7. Actually, the USPS tried to deliver it today. I was not there to sign for it and am out of town tomorrow. The form does not indicate that there is any customs payment due. So I will go to the post office on Friday.
  8. Mine has finally arrived in the United States and/or passed through Customs. So it should be arriving soon (fingers crossed). Interesting that LaPoste says it will require a signature.
  9. True. But at least you have a game to play. After all, you can’t play a box. 😝
  10. Admittedly, Nanochess makes a lot more sense. But you have to admit that Nachoness is a cooler name. (And believe it or not, there is no nacho emoji but there a chess emoji ♟
  11. Actually right now there is a bit of a chip shortage. And the game has been popular. When I mentioned my plight (my order of three games had Aardvark back ordered until Rev gets supplies), Nachoness thought it was funny that he caused a chip shortage.
  12. I am envious hearing everyone talk about getting their game. Mine seems to be in Customs purgatory as the tracking has not changed in a week. Well Monday is another week. I just hope it does not take as long as the book I ordered from France in mid-December. It took five weeks (though it did arrive eventually).
  13. Does this mean the supplier has come through? And it sounds like I need to start saving up a couple of hundred dollars. 8*>
  14. I think we sometimes forget that Rev has to do most of the final production and distribution work himself. He also is reliant on supplies from elsewhere, which I believe is the root cause for much of the current delays. Also, he is allowed to have a life -- at least on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and alternating Saturdays. 8*>
  15. Was the ROM ever released to club members? I never saw it in the file locker. (If there are instructions in the box -- I missed them).
  16. OK. I will breathe now. Tracking is worth its weight in Euros.
  17. My wife just threatens to throw away everything in "Messville." Most of the time though, she just shakes her head and says I have an addiction. I must say, she may be right as how much I fret and track shipping when I make an order.
  18. I am sure you are right. Hopefully it will move soon. It is just frustrating. The last time I ordered a book from France, it took five weeks to arrive (it was a book at was labeled "Livres." Hopefully it won't take that long. Finally, if it ends up being lost in transit, will you be able to replace it -- I see that the game is sold out. Mike
  19. No new information as of 1620 GMT-5 (4:20 PM EST) - the most recent update time on 17Track. I think I have a love-hate relationship with tracking. I am sure everything will work out and the package will arrive. But patience is a virtue that I do not possess. Tomorrow is another day to track. 8*>
  20. Mine shows "Your parcel is transiting through our network to be delivered to you as quickly as possible" on both LaPoste and 17Track. From the information on 17Track, it sounds like this means it is awaiting customs clearance. That makes sense as the latest message was posted Friday (31 Jan from LaPoste) or early Saturday (1 Feb from 17Track), depending on the time used by the tracking service. Hopefully it will move today.
  21. As we are now only about nine months away from the launch of the Amico, I am beginning to wonder if there will continue to be demand for new games for the original console. The Amico Founders Edition sold out in six hours. Deposits of $100 were put down for 2600 units. That shows people recognize the brand and there is demand. But does it translate into demand for new games for the original console. A few years ago, game runs of 150 to 200 sold out in days, if not hours. Today, high-end products take weeks to reach triple digits (100) in sales. And the number of Amico sold is between four and five times the number of sales for the most popular device to play game ROMs (the LTO Flash has reportedly sold 500-600 copies, if comments on the forums are correct). Personally, I like new games for my 2609, my SVA, my 5872, my SPS, etc. Currently, Maria from Cote Gamers is en route from France while Aardvark, Fubar, and Melody Runner from Intellivision Revolution are awaiting mailing (they seem to have been stuck in pre-shipment for a while). So I will continue to buy. But I also know that with games for the Amico costing a fraction of the price of those for the original unit, it will be increasingly difficult to justify paying the same price for a game for a four-decade hardware platform as the newest game for the newest console units. What thoughts do others have? I know there are some big releases planned for this year. But I wonder if it is the beginning of the end and people transition to the Amico or if the Amico leads to more interest in the original platform and a Renaissance in game development. What does everyone else think?
  22. Speaking of tracking, does anyone have any good suggestions on what to use? (I am using 17Track but I wasn’t sure if there was a better resource).
  23. Mine did not go out until Thursday because there was a question about my address. The tracking shows it has already left France. So I would hope to see it by midweek.
  24. Did you get an email that said it was shipped? If so, email and ask. They have been very good about replaying. if not, hang tight. It should ship soon.
